Cookies & Cream Cupcakes


Two Words = Heaven Sent! This Cookies & Cream Cupcakes recipe is one of my favorite cupcake recipes, just that hint of cookie goodness to satisfy any sweet tooth.

If you like sneaking tastes of uncooked cookie batter, this one’s for you. I usually resist, but not for these!

Word to the wise, if you are using ready-made packaged frosting, whip it to double the amount. Saves money and calories {but who’s counting, right?} This kitchen tip is one of many genius time and money savers in one of my past posts.
